General Information about our dogs
Tampa Pekingese is the only breeder in the Tampa Bay Area. Our Pekingese are very special to us and we consider them part of our family. They are spoiled rotten and given everything they desire.
We expect families that request to become a parent to one of our puppies to do the same.
If you've never experienced a Pekingese, they are one of the most loving and adorable pets you could want. Many are not overly aggressive but are very loyal, friendly and loving.
If you are still interested in meeting one of our Pekingese or in becoming an adoptive parent please fill out our application form here.
General Information about our dogs
First off we have to say we are not a Puppy Mill! Second we have to say that our dogs are very well cared for and are part of our family.
We are not here to sell a puppy to just anyone and we definitely will not sell to just anyone. You must apply to buy one of our puppies and our guidelines are strict.
We specifically picked out two White Pekingese from two parts of the country and we let them breed naturally. We do not force them to breed and we do not attempt to alter their natural habits. Our Pekingese are both purebred with papers.
If you think that you would like to be considered as a family to one of our dogs please fill out our contact form and application and we will contact you. Contact Form

General Information about Pekingese
The Pekingese breed is over 2000 years old and has hardly changed in all that time. One exception is that modern breeders and dog-show judges seem to prefer the long-haired type over the more-traditional spaniel-type coat. The Pekingese's flat face is one of the breed's most obvious characteristics. The body is compact and low to the ground. The legs are noticeably bowed and restrict the Pekingese's movement. The Peke's unusual rolling gait may have been deliberately bred to prevent the court dogs from wandering.
A Pekingese has a double coat. Trimming the coat is discouraged in show dogs. The Pekingese has a noticeable mane and feathering around the ears, tail and legs. All breed standards allow all sorts of color combinations. The majority of Pekingese are gold, red or sable. Light gold, cream, black, white, sables, black and tan and occasionally 'blue' or slate grey have appeared in the breed. The latter often has poor pigment and light eyes. Albino Pekingese (white with pink eyes) should be bred cautiously due to health problems that have been associated with albinism. A black mask or a self-colored face is equally acceptable in show dogs. Regardless of coat color the exposed skin of the muzzle, nose, lips and eye rims is black.
Pekes weigh from 7 to 14 lb (3.2 to 6.4 kg) and stand about 6–9 inches (15–23 cm) at the withers, however they can sometimes be smaller. These smaller Pekes are commonly referred to as "Sleeve" Pekingese or just "Sleeves". The name is taken from ancient times, when emperors would carry the smallest of the breed in their sleeves. A Pekingese over 14 pounds is disqualified in the show ring. The Pekingese is slightly longer than tall when measured from the fore chest to the buttocks. The overall outline is an approximate ratio of 3 high to 5 long.
